Reception for artist Luisa Caldwell

Thursday, April 4, 2019, 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm

Join us for a reception for artist Luisa Caldwell!

Caldwell, a UI alumna, has created two pieces that will be featured in the lobby during Hancher’s presentation of American Ballet Theatre’s Whipped Cream.

The installations, which took about 220 hours to create, are made from candy wrappers, thread, and satin ribbon. Curtain Call will be located in the second-floor lobby and hang floor to ceiling to create a translucent screen. Folly in the Stanley Café is a circular form with an opening through which people can walk in and be surrounded by tangled, weblike streamers of ribbon and candy wrappers.
